Appearance: A very clear blanche with no sediment or hue detected.

Louche: The louche ends up being very thick. An opaque and almost almond-like appearance with not much variation in hue.

Aroma: A very fennel driven smell that is also floral, sweet, and citrus in character.

Flavor: The texture is creamy and silky with a heavy weight on the tounge. Delightful citrus and lavender tones dominate over piques of anise and wormwood. There's a bit of a citrus tang but not so much of a flavor.

Finish: Crisp and slightly bitter finish with an increase in the citrus notes revealing lemonbalm. Not too long lasting and towards the end a surprising amount of star anise shows up.

Overall: A very good and interesting floral blanche. The star anise use is within reason but very pronounced in the finish, which also could last a bit longer. I love the crispness of the finish contrasting with the creamy texture of the flavor. Something as nice as the flavor makes this a great drink, if only it would stay with you longer.

Appearance: nothing to say here, crystal clear.

Louche: very thick, even after the very first drops. Some blue and orange. Opalescent when adding water.

Aroma: sweet and balanced, holy trinity well represented, some citrus notes. Mountains in summer.

Flavor: an exercise in balance of the holy trinity. Sweet and delicate. No strong flavor dominating. No bitterness. Aromas and flavors succeed in filling the whole mouth and nose.

Finish: only in the finish some bitterness is revealed and stays long.

Overall: a lovely blanche. Its main characteristics are sweetness and balance. It may be an interesting exercise to compare it to Blanche Neige, that has a more distinct personality because of Genepi and an even stronger aroma of mountains in summer.
